BOOKISH GOSSIP: LOOKING BACK AT 2017 RESOLUTIONS

Last year I set myself five little goals, five resolutions to help me read and blog better. I’m not sure I really achieved any of my goals, but I know that I pushed myself to try, and if I failed them in 2017, I can always try again next year… So my goals in 2017 were: to actually complete a challenge i set myself Last year I set the task of completing a bookish challenge. I failed. This year I just want to complete one challenge. I still failed. Challenges are really hard, but despite not completing any challenges I have learnt so much from the challenges, and read books and watched musicals I probably would not have otherwise done. reduce the amount of arc’s / netgalley books i have to read So I feel like I can say that I have done this. I have been ruthless and got rid of books that I do want to read but have been in the pile since 2014. Clearly I am not super excited for those books even if my brain says otherwise. Also there was a sense of relief of getting rid of so many books. This only lasted a month […]

Introducing: Movie Musical Challenge 2017

Introducing: Movie Musical Challenge 2017

Last Year I participated in Bookish Whimsy Movie Musical Challenge. This year I’ve decided to do another Musical Challenge. This time the 25 AFI’s Greatest Musicals of all Times!The Challenge is 25 Musicals in 12 months. Which should be really easy. Fingers crossed. Some of these I have already seen. But in honour of the challenge I am watching them ALL OVER AGAIN. Fingers crossed that this year I can watch a whole load of musicals. The Plan: I’m not going to watch these movies in any particular order, but each one I watch I will review. The plan is to watch at least two a month. Warp up in December where I will reorder the top 25 into my own list of top 25.   The AFI’s Top 25 Movie Musical List: Singin’ in the Rain (1952) West Side Story (1961) The Wizard of Oz (1939) The Sound of Music (1965) Cabaret (1972) Mary Poppins (1964) A Star Is Born (1954) My Fair Lady (1964) An American in Paris (1951) Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) The King and I (1956) Chicago (2002) 42nd Street (1933) All That Jazz (1979) Top Hat (1935) Funny Girl (1968) The Band Wagon […]

Bookish Gossip: My Bookish Resolutions for 2017

  So you all must be sick of bookish resolutions. Everyone has posted they year goals already. But just because it is no longer the new year doesn’t mean that resolutions can’t be made.  And as normally new year resolutions are ditched with within the first two weeks of making them that I thought now would be a perfect time to list my 2017 bookish resolutions. So that is what I am doing, I’m listing my bookish resolutions for 2017. Last year I set myself six little resolutions. Some of them I achieved. Others I failed miserably. This year I hope to achieve all my goals, but we will find out at the end of the year. So my goals this year are: To actually complete a challenge I set myself Last year I set the task of completing a bookish challenge. I failed. This year I just want to complete one challenge. It doesn’t have to be bookish. I can be anything. And seeing as I be announcing a couple of challenges soon this goal should be achievable. This year at least. Reduce the amount of ARC’s / Netgalley books I have to read I feel like this is […]

Bookish Gossip: Looking back at 2016 Resolutions

Posted January 23, 2017 by Charlotte in Bookish Gossip / 0 Comments

Last year I set myself six little goals, six resolutions to help me read and blog better. Some of these I achieved others I failed at. But looking back I’m really happy with what I achieved and hopefully this will push me to do even better in 2017 So my goals in 2016 were: To complete the reading challenges I set myself.  This was a challenge I failed. Again I didn’t complete a challenge but this gave me an opportunity to try new things so in that sense it was a success. To comment on other blogs.  I definitely succeeded in this challenge. Sometime I struggle to know what to say but as the year progressed I felt I got a lot more comfortable sharing my opinion. Reduce the amount of ARC’s / Netgalley books I have to read.  I don’t think I succeeded in this goal, there are still a huge pile of books to read, but I have definitely become a lot more selective in what I will request and say I want to read. However… read some of my own books for my own pleasure. This was a brilliant idea of mine, it was so good to step back […]
